Whoo hoo... I got some forks today, a real beat up rusty set of "long" early roadholders. Really they are a bit early for my frame, as the sliders have a different mounting bracket for the front mudguard (fender) struts.
Early sliders have a vertical bracket, later ones have a horizontal bracket, but as the object is to get it on the road first and formost, little things like this can be sorted at a later date

So that is ...

frame
gearbox
oil tank
front forks
engine cases

That's Dick Klamfoth. It's on the beach at Daytona, and he held AMA #1 at the time. Probably 1952 or 3

Well the forks have been stripped, checked, and had a couple of thread repairs done, the sliders are now away for poishing the rest will be vapour blasted, and then sent for paint.

I also won these on the bay at the weekend...



need to try to find some wheels now, well Kempton is this weekend, so I shall see what's there. I also have to pick up my 350 Bullet Enfield on Saturday..... did I mention that?

Picture update as promised...



It doesn't look like much is happening, but it is mostly finding parts at this time. My first priority is to get the front and rear suspension. And then look for a set of wheels.
As it happens, the laydown gearbox, although looking scabby, does seem ok, as you can select a gear or two, and all seems to be free. The engine cases are in great undamaged condition, but may well get used as a trade, as they are model 19 cases (600cc) and I would like to use ES2 cases, (500cc).

I take my hat off to you Kev. That looks like scrap to this tinker. Looking forward to seeing how you tackle this.

Looks like a great start!

Must be nice to be able to hit a buncha places within 100 miles with a hope of finding what you need. Here i'd be lucky to source enough Norton single parts within 3000 miles.

My friend Bob on a replica of the Norton he raced at Daytona in '48;



I've wanted a Norton single for many years, but the urge really struck when i got to start hanging around Bob & Co. Getting to ride everything from a '27 CS1 to a '63 Manx has spoiled me. Too bad they are all out of reach for me.

Norton single @ British & European Bike day in Maryland;






'24 Model 18. I got to ride this one around Barber.

Any close ups of this bike? front hub, rear hub etc

I know I am in a lucky position, having friends who are into these things, it took me over a year to find a frame, I had all but given up on the idea when this frame came along. Now though, it is do-able, I have a nice set of long roadholders here, that I have spent the afternoon stripping down, ready for blasting and paint.

I have been watching an oil tank on eBay, a genuine Inter wrap around tank, and I was sniped in the last second only thing was I bid £400 ($625) and still lost, so how much for a fuel tank then?
